UPDATE: Suspect ID'd in Tuesday Bishopville car chase that ended with crash

BISHOPVILLE, Md. - Officials in Worcester County say that a car chase resulted in a crash Tuesday morning in Bishopville.

The Worcester County Sheriff's Office says that at around 10:30 AM deputies tried to stop a vehicle near St. Martin's Neck Road when the driver failed to pull over and kept going.

Soon after, the fleeing vehicle reportedly crashed into a pole and swerved into a ditch. Police say the driver became trapped, with officials having to rescue the driver. 

The driver, identified as 25-year-old Brant Scheuerman of Bishopville, was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries, officials said.

Police say the deputy originally tried to pull Scheuerman over for following another vehicle too closely. A search of Scheuerman revealed a large quantity of suspected heroin, officials said.

Pending Scheuerman's release from the hospital, police say he will be facing drug and fleeing charges.
